A sweet dog named Hamlin has the undesirable designation as “longest resident” of the Perry County Humane Society of Illinois. Despite having a fun-loving personality, Hamlin has remained homeless for half of his life.

The four-year-old dog’s adoption profile reads, in part:

Hamlin is a 4-year-old lab mix who weighs 70 pounds. He is one handsome fella and is looking for a family as active as he is! He loves running around in our play yard, making new friends, and living life to its fullest. If you like adventure and exploration, Hamlin might just be your guy!

On Monday, the shelter created a social media post on Hamlin’s behalf, writing of his need for a home:

This sweet boy is our longest resident here at PCHS. He is named Hamlin and he’ll be celebrating his 2 year anniversary of being with us next month, but he’d rather be in a brand new home!

They add:

Sweet Hamlin knows to sit while being leashed up despite having lots of energy he’s ready to burn.
